Marvel and Netflix’s “Luke Cage” series just got a little better, thanks to a fan-made video that reimagines the superhero series as the ‘90s sitcom “Family Matters.” Created by YouTuber Zach Ace, the video uses the characters of “Luke Cage” and inserts them into the opening credits sequence of the family show.

The mashup begins with a shot of New York, a barber shop and introduces viewers to Frankie Faison, who portrays Henry ‘Pop’ Hunter. The show’s tone quickly changes from serious to happy-go-lucky with the addition of the song “As Days Go By” playing in the background and the shots of the rest of the cast smiling and laughing. To top it off, the clip also pokes fun at Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) by calling Rob Morgan’s character Turk Barrett, Turkel.
